I got accum's on my rears but she still bounces quite a bit once you get up there on the Intertstate, thats why i was wonderin if the car could take that constant bouncing for a good out of state road trip

Yes, I have accumulators and take "road trips" every week. I drove to New Hampshire every week for about six months (about 900 miles round-trip). And now I'm driving to New York every week (about 350 miles round-trip). I've made quite a few trips to my favorite state, Florida. That's about 1,200 mile each way. I've done that twice already this year. Then there's Nashville, TN. (about 800 miles each way) and Raleigh, NC (about 375 miles each way.)
If I couldn'd drive the hell out of my car like I want to, I would have gotten rid of juice 12 years ago. :)

If you have accum's and your car is still bouncin' around, then you have some adjustments to make.

I drive mine everyday and I have taken it to Las Vegas at least 10 times a year for the last 3 years. I will take it to Lake Tahoe in February for a week. No problems.

I drove my 4runner from Ohio to Tampa Florida with no problems. It was about 1200 miles. If you can build them to drive then what is the point.
